Articles of Interest 



A Large Family 

A. A. SMITH, who lives near Grifton, dropped in Friday 
to get a Reflector subscription receipt, and while here told 
us there are four generations of his people living. He says 
his father, J. B. SMITH, now living at Clay Root, is 76 
years old, and had married three times. He had 11 children, 
all born by his first wife, and 10 of them are now living. 
There are also 50 grand-children and 5 great-grand-children. 
This is certainly a large family. 

Daily Reflector, October 16, 1909. 



Four Generations 

Mr. J. R. BARNHILL remarked to the Reflector Monday 
that four generations of his family are living. Mr. 
BARNHILL himself is 61 years old, and his father, Mr. 
Theophilus BARNHILL is 82. His oldest daughter, Mrs. 
Charles MCGLOHORN, is 40, and his oldest grandchild is 19.

Remarkable Family Tree 

Mr. Green B. LETCHWORTH, who lives with his daughter, 
Mrs. Allen CRAWFORD, 5 miles from Greenville, has a 
remarkable family. When he want to count them all up he can

them all. He is the father of 13 children, has 51 grand 
children, 66 great grandchildren and 28 great great 
grandchildren. Of his own children 9 lived to be grown and 
4 are now living. Of the grand and great grand children all 
are living but 4. 

Daily Reflector, October 30, 1903 



Mr. J. H. P. BRYAN was in town Tuesday and had his 
Confederate coat with him. It is the same coat he wore 
during the war. The editor was favored with one of the 
buttons. It is of brass, was made in Philadelphia and on it 
are an eagle perched upon an anchor with thirteen stars in a 
circle above the eagle. Mr. BRYAN also has a war knife 
known as the "Yankee killer" made for him at the beginning 
of the war, by Mr. Theopolus BARNHILL.

Local News 



SHOT STONEWALL JACKSON. 

Mr. W. I. WHITEHURST , of near Bethel, an old 
Confederate, was in town Wednesday and told us a little 
about the part he took in the volley that killed Stonewall 
Jackson. He was in the Brigade to guard the road with 
orders to let no one pass. Having just driven HOOKER into 
his defenses at Chancellorsville, Gen. JACKSON was very 
anxious to follow up the fruits of the battle and 
reconnortering at night, and refusing to halt as demanded, 
was fired into by his own men and mortally wounded, on the 
night of May 2nd 1863, dying the 10th. 

Mr. WHITEHURST was in the Brigade and fired at JACKSON. 
Who hit him can not be known.

The Crawford Brothers 

Editor Reflector: Three CRAWFORD brothers die in 100 
days. They were Ben Frank, George and David L. The trio 
was faithful followers of Lee and were the sons of Calvin 
and Susan CRAWFORD, born in Beaver Dam near Piney Grove 
church. David enlisted in the old Marlboro Company four 
brave young stalwart brothers a hard fought battle. He 
engaged in that death pit at Bristow Station. Frank and 
George enlisted in the 44 N. C. Regiment. They too were at 
the bloody battle of Bristow Station. All were in the 
trenches before Petersburg. George was in the sharpshooter 
department. This writer has heard old comrades speak of him 
as the bravest of the brave on the deadly front. These 
noble brothers were born poor (in a log cabin) though 
patriotic. Three harder or faithful followers of the lost 
cause would be hard to find. They were true while some of 
their neighbors deserted the grand old state and hid out in 
the woods. 

All had by hard work and economy owned a plain country 
home and raised large families and died at peace with all 
men. They too, have another brother surviving (Allen). He 
too, followed the lost flag. 

Young men of the day think of the four brave young 
stalwart brothers that went out from that little log cabin 
by the old plank road.

Contentnea township, or we should as well say Ayden, 
has a remarkable family for names. It is the family of Mr. 
Biggs COX, Jr., down in Fork Swamp. Mr. COX is the son of 
Biggs COX, Sr., who married Miss Jennie HARRINGTON , daughter 
of Mr. Joel HARRINGTON, who fought like a trojan in the 
Reveolutionary war and raised a large family to enjoy the 
spoils of his victory. Biggs COX, Jr., is his great-grand 
son and he married Miss Jutry Jennie HART, daughter of Mr. 
Barrom and Jennie HART, and to this union has been born the 
following children, to-wit: Zylphia Farena COX, Zula Jemima 
COX, Zadye COX, Zadock COX, Zeber Titus COX, Zenoby COX, 
Zerony Geo. Duly COX, Zesley Beriah Thadius COX, Zeola 
Leander COX, Zara Deserman COX, Zelbert Gaston COX. This 
wonderful family are the descendants of the old Plymouth 
Rock stock that are noted for their inflexible fidelity and 
the community in which they live is fertile, in fact, it is 
one of the most independent localities in Pitt County. 

Daily Reflector, April 11, 1911 



DREADFUL FIRE 

Died on the evening of the 12th Inst, the children of 
Phillip SMITH of Pitt County. Mr. SMITH and wife left home 
on a visit to Mr. SMITH'S mother, who resided a short 
distance from him. They left five children at home, the 
eldest a daughter about 10 years old and on their return 
home found the house consumed by fire with four other 
children, one of the eldest escaped but is so dreadfully 
burned it is feared she will die.

TOJO HITLER MILLS' NAME BE CHANGED 



Tojo Hitler MILLS, Negro infant born near Winterville on January 
24, 1945 had his name changed today when his parents, Nasby R. MILLS, 68 
year old farmer, and his wife, Marie DIXON MILLS, requested Register of 
Deeds Roy T. COX to change it to Odell MILLS. 

The child's father, a respected Negro citizen of Winterville town- 
ship, who has two boys in the armed forces, said he selected the names 
because they were unusual — nothing else. He wanted the youngster to 
have a name different from other boys when he goes to school, he said. 
Incidentally the MILLS son, Pvt. Emerson MILLS has been in service three 
years and in the South Pacific two years. Another son Pvt. Ramia A. 
MILLS has been in the armed forces a year and in the South Pacific six 
months and he has "been sleeping in foxholes the past three months," he 
wrote his parents. 

People in Winterville who know the MILLS died not take seriously 
the naming of the baby. They incline to the belief that MILLS simply 
picked the names Tojo and Hitler because they are unusual. From now on 
it is Odell MILLS — minus the German and Japananese cognomens.

FATAL AFFRAY 

We understand that on Thursday last, in the town of Greenville, Pitt 
County, an affray occurred which resulted in the death of Mr. John 
CHERRY, of that place. It appears that a misunderstanding existed 
between Mr. CHERRY and Mr. Dempsey EASON, and on that day as Mr. EASON 
was passing the store of Mr. CHERRY he discharged a gun loaded with buck 
shot at Mr. EASON, wounding him severely. Mr. EASON then fired a pistol 
at Mr. CHERRY and wounded him also. The parties separated — but meeting 
in the street shortly afterwards, Mr. EASON fired his pistol a second 
time, giving Mr. CHERRY a mortal wound of which he died in about fifteen 
minutes. Mr. EASON is badly, though not considered dangerously wounded. 

Tarboro Free Press, June 2, 1830 



MURDER 

A young man named Sherwood H. BROOM, a shoemaker, was killed in this 
place (says the Milton Gazette) on the 4th inst. by Henry BREWER. BROOM 
was stabbed in the breast, and only lived two or three minutes. We 
understand BROOM was born near Greenville, Pitt County, in this state, 
where his relations now live. He has been in this place several months, 
and it is said has conducted himself very prudently. 

Tarboro Free Press, July 25, 1829 



KILLING 

Mr. J. N. BELL Jr. of this town informs us that he has information of 
the killing of Burt PARAMORE and one Dick PEEBLES while they were 
attempting to break into a house near Baltimore, Md. they were shot and 
killed. Burt PARAMO RE will be remembered as one of the PARAMORE 
brothers. Dick PEEBLES was a native of Pitt County.

Family Histories 



Gleaned by Roger Kammerer from the Daily Reflector, Greenville, North 
Carolina. 



"Interesting History of an Old Family of Early Settlers. 
-Ayden, N.C., Jan. 28 [1910]. 
Editor Reflector: 

About 1719, there came from England three brothers named HANCOCK, 
and settled in Pennsylvania, Maryland and North Carolina. 

William HANCOCK settled in North Carolina, on Durham's Creek, in 
Beaufort county, and married soon thereafter Miss Bettie DURHAM, and 
to their union was born a son whom they christened Durham HANCOCK. 
When this son attained his majority he moved to the little village of 
New Bern, and was one of the first trustees of that town. He was soon 
married and raised a family near the placid waters of the Neuse. 
Durham HANCOCK'S oldest son was named George HANCOCK, and when he had 
developed into manhood he moved on Stoneton creek in Lenoir county 
near where the late Fred JONES and John NELSON once lived, and where 
the town of Grainger is now situated. He raised a large family of boys 
and girls. One of his boys was killed by Tories and his sister took 
his remains behind an old blind horse in a rickety cart with white oak 
tires, to the old burying ground on Durham's creek, and during her 
lonely trip she encountered the savage Indians, who detained her. Upon 
finding only a fearless woman with a corpse they fled in dismay, and 
while crossing the Dismal or Savannah she was accosted by some wild 
hyenas, but she still continued her lonely journey. 

George had a son named James, who was fond of agriculture, and when 
he grew into manhood moved into Pitt county and settled on Swift 
creek, in the vicinity known as Fork swamp. He soon married and raised 
a family. His oldest son was named Herman HANCOCK, who wooed the heart 
of Miss Rhoda WORTH INGTON and lived near Hancock's, a Primitive Bap- 
tist church. To them was born several children, among them one girl 
named Mary, better known as "Pollie," who after her father's death 
lived with her widowed mother, and was quite prominent in that day as 
an herb and root doctor, and also told fortunes, etc. After the death 
of her mother she still lived alone, with only a few pet cats and a 
dog, until quite old. At her death of course all her belongings were 
converted into money. The famous jug that had been handed down through 
many generations was sold. Mr. R. L. COX tells us he was the highest 
bidder, for 3 5 cents, and it was then full of honey. Since then had 
dedicated its use to vinegar. 

Gideon PELLET [PETTIT] , who married one of James HANCOCK'S daugh- 
ters, was the first man who ever owned a set of steel cart tiers 
[tires] in Pitt county. 



Dr. HASKETT, the famous root and herb doctor, married one of Herman 
HANCOCK'S daughters, and lived near New Bern, and some of their direct 
descendants live in both New Bern and Kinston and still practice the 
same profession. 

These facts are correct as near as I can get them.— R. W. SMITH."

"Local News. [1898] 
Remarkable Family. 

Charles HARRIS left England in 1760, came to America and settled in 
Pitt county which was formed the same year. He was then twenty two 
years old. He served in three wars. He joined the Free Will Baptist 
church in 1845, when he was 107 years old. He never used any strong 
drink or tobacco. He died in 1860 at the advanced age of 122 years. 
His wife was Loany MCLAWHON, whose parents came from Scotland. They 
had nine children, none dying under eigth-six years of age. The young- 
est, the late Charles HARRIS died about a year ago, aged eighty eight 
years . 

Charles HARRIS Jr. married very young, Betsey NICHOLS. They had 
twelve children, six boys and six girls. Three sons went through the 
late was without a scratch. A fouth was killed at Manassas. There are 
near two hundred living descendants of this couple. They are noted for 
quiet life, physical manhood and unusual longerity. 

These facts are gathered from "Uncle" Josh TRIPP, who wife is a 
grand-daughter of Charles HARRIS. He saw the old man baptized in Swift 
Creek in 1845. People from far and near were present. 

There are many relics of old times in the family. Our townsman Mr. 
H. B. HARRIS has a sword that his great grand father, Charles HARRIS 
Sr. used, probably in the Revolution."

"Desires to Get in Correspondence with Relatives. [1911] 
The following letter, recently received by Sheriff S. I. DUDLEY, was 
handed to The Reflector for publication that any relatives of the 
gentleman writing it may be read the letter and correspond with him if 
they desire: 

-Aledo, Tex., Feb. 1, 1911. 

To the Sheriff of Pitt County, N.C.: 

Will you please inform me if there is living in your county at this 
time any persons by the name of BRAXTON. If there are, I suppose they 
are relatives of mine and I would be glad to correspond with them. My 
father and mother were born and raised in Pitt county. My grandfather 
BRAXTON'S given name was John, and my grandmother was named Hannah. My 
father's name was Lacy BRAXTON. One of his brothers was named Councel 
(or Counce) , another was named John, and I think another was Charles. 
He had one sister who married a man by the name of Luke LOHON or 
MCLOHON. There may have been more brothers and sisters, but these are 
all that I can call to mind now. 



My father's first wife and my mother was Elizabeth PARKER. There 
were three children born to that union; they first one named Marion 
died in infancy, the second, Elbert, lived to be about 12 years old 
and died in Tennessee, the third and last one was myself, Elias, and I 
am 66 years old. My mother died in Pitt county in 184 6 and my father 
married a second time in 1848 or '49. His last wife was named Lizzina 
TRIPP, daughter of A rte r TRIPP, of Pitt county. They moved to Tennes- 
see in 1849 and raised six children, all of whom are living there, 
except one who is living in Texas. 

My father has been dead near 25 years. My grandfather PARKER, I 
think, lived and died in Pitt county. My mother had two brothers and 
two sisters that I can remember, the brothers being Frank and James 
PARKER, the sisters Sylva, who married Simon HAMILTON and Rachael, who 
married a man by the name of Jesse BRAXTON. They moved to Tennessee in 
an early day. 

If you can place this letter in the hands of any of my relatives 
you will confer a very great favor upon me, and I will be glad if they 
will write to me immediately. 
Yours truly, 
Elias BRAXTON. 

(As BRAXTON is a very famil&r name in this county, and many people by 
that name are still living, we suppose relatives of the writer of the 
above letter will be easily found. -Ed. ) * 

Daily Reflector; Feb. 15, 1911.

SON SHOOTS FATHER 
(Daily Reflector May 10, 1909) 

N. L. GRAY Badly Wounded by His 
Son "Bud" GRAY 

On Sunday the colored people had a quarterly meeting at their 
church, Post Oak, in Carolina Township, and a large number of their race 
were in attendance. A young white man, "Bud" GRAY went out to this meet- 
ing. His father, Mr. N. L. GRAY, learning that the young man had gone 
there, went after him and reprimanded him for being there, and also 
accused him of going for the purpose of selling liquor to the colored 
people. Young GRAY resented the interference of his father and cursed 
the latter for accusing him of selling liquor, whereupon his father 
slapped him. This angered the young man more and he left the place and 
went home for a gun. On his way back with the weapon he met his father 
in front of the latter' s home and shot him at close range in the bowels 
with a load of bird shot. The elder Mr. GRAY was struck with about 80 
shots ranging from his waist line downward. From last account today he 
was resting as comfortably as could be expected. 

A small son of Mr. GRAY who was near the scene was also struck by 
some of the stray shot. 

Why pay money to have your family tree traced? Go into politics and 
your opponents will do it for you.

BORN FIVE YEARS BEFORE THE REPUBLIC 

We learn from the Maysville (Ky.) Bulletin that John ALLEN, who has 
reached the remarkable age of 104 years, and 5 months passed down the river 
in the steamer Ohio on Sunday morning. He was born on the 9th of October, 
1771, at sea, while his parents were coming from England to America. He 
left his home near Greenville, NC. on Tar River, and walked to Huntington, 
W. Va. being very nearly a year on the road. He was never married. He 
chews tobacco and enjoys his cup of coffee every morning. 

Tarboro Southerner February 11, 1876 



It is a desirable thing to be well-descended, but the glory belongs to our

PECULIAR DEATHS: TWO LADIES DIE WHILE VISITING A SICK SISTER. 

(Eastern Reflector, Apr. 18, 1896) 

The REFLECTOR learns of two strange deaths that recently occurred in Bethel township 
About three weeks ago Miss Chrissie CARSON went to visit her niece, Mrs. M. A. JAMES near 
Conetoe, and while there was taken sick with fever. A week later her sister, Miss Bedie CARSON 
went to Mr. JAMES' to see her. Not long after reaching there she was sitting in a chair talking with 
the family, when she was suddenly seized with some trouble and died in a few minutes as was told 
a few days later by our Bethel correspondent. Miss Chrissie CARSON's sickness continued and on 
last Saturday another sisier, Mrs. Theophilus BARNHILL, went to Mr. JAMES' to see her Mrs 
BARNHILL sat up with the family until bed time and retire. Next morning she was found dead in 
bed. She showed no signs of sickness the night before. 



DEATH NOTICE 

(Eastern Reflector, Aug. 12, 1896) 

We regret to hear that Mr. T. M. G. ROSS, of Chicod township, died a few days ago. Mr. Ross 
gallant Confederate soldier who lost one of his arms on the battle field. 



A CENTENARIAN 

(King's Weekly, Nov. 6, 1902) 



On the train last Saturday from Parmele to Bethel we met Mr. John E. C. GODLEY, who claims that 
he was 104 years old June 6th last. He is a root and herb doctor and makes a most wonderful soap 
good for almost anything. He has been married twice hiw wife being now only 43. He has been the 
father of five children, on of whom was killed in the Spanish-American war. He himself claims to 
be a veteran of the war of 1812-15, the Seminole war in Florida, the Mexican war and the civil war 
1860-5. He says he was 2nd Sergeant in a company of Louisiana Zouaves, under Mai WHEAT He ' 
appears to be about 60 years old.

A GOOD WOMAN GONE. 
(Daily Reflector; June 4, 1906) 

Mrs. Isabella MOORE, widow of James Spencer MOORE, died at her home in Pactolus township 
the 28th day of May, 1906, aged about 84 years. She was born in 1822, and was married in 1835 and 
was the mother of twelve children, G. L. MOORE, L. C. MOORE, Z. L. MOORE, Mrs. David HYMAN 
and Mrs. J. J. FLEMING, of Pactolus, Mrs. B. H. HEARNE, of Greenville, G. C. MOORE, Zeno MOORE 
Miss Melissa MOORE, Miss Jacky MOORE and Miss Ellen MOORE of Whitakers, N. C., and McG 
MOORE, who was wounded and captured at Fort Harrison in 1864, and died of wounds in Prison. 

Mrs. MOORE was indeed a good woman, up to the close of the civil war she was surrounded by 
considerable wealth and her charity to the poor was unbounded. She united with the Primitive Baptist 
church many years ago, and was a consistent member up to the time of her death. Her church life was 
truly beautiful. For the last few years of her life she was feeble and bent with age, but the warm grasp of 
her hand, and her cheerful voice will long be remmebered by the members of her church and the public 
generally. — A Friend.

A SAD DEATH. 

(Eastern Reflector; Sept. 17, 1901) 

Mr. J. P. MANNING, who was accidentally hurt while in bathing in Grindle creek on Aug. 7th 
1901, from which he became paralyzed, died Sept. 5th in the hospital at Tarboro. Everything that was 
possible was done for him by the physicians of this section. He was taken to John Hopkins Hospital in 
Baltimore where it was found no relief could be given him, when he was brought back home and placed 
in the hospital at Tarboro. His father attended him faithfully there until the end. 

Few young men raised in Pitt county started out in life with brighter prospects than the subject of 
this sketch. He was raised in Bethel township where he lived until the age of twenty-one when with his 
older brother, W. J. MANNING, he purchased the Edgar BUCK farm, three miles from Greenville and 
resided there until he met the terrible accident which cost him his life. The death of this young man 
who was cut down just as he was entering the prime of life has cast a gloom over his friends and the' 
community. 

He was 24 years old and a son of J. L. G. MANNING, Esq., of Bethel township. The father, a sister 
and three brothers survive him, ahd they have the sincere sympathy of a large circle of friends in the 
untimely death of their loved one. He will be missed by friends and associates as few young men of his 
age are missed. — J.

away. One by one they go. 

Mr. Louis B. COX, one of Swift Creek's veterans, died on the 7th, in his 89th year. He was a good 
and valuable citizen. Of his family of four boys and three girls, all but one boy survive him, all being 
grown. His wife, a few years younger than himself, and one brother, Mr. Guilford COX, aged 77 years 
are living. He was a member of the Free Will Baptist church. 

Swift Creel also lost another highly respected citizen in the death of Mr. Theophilgs BLAND s_r the 
1st of November, Mr. BLAND was 82 years old. He had lived to see his eight sons and five daughters all 
grown and married. He was a good neighbor and a lose, to his community. He was a member of the 
Disciples. 

Swift Creek has other men who have passed many years. A very few more years will make one a 
centenarian and it the wish of his many friends that he may be spared ever more and that the others 
may be likeness blest. 



R. A. WILLOUGHBY 
Died February 26th — A Short Sketch of His Life. 
(Daily Reflector; Mar. 25, 1910) 

He was born in what is now Beaver Dam township, Pitt county, Feb. 16th 1835, and was raised on 
the farm on which he died. Not knowing much about his boyhood life I will say nothing of that but 
after he grew to manhood I moved in his neighborhood and he and I became very intimate friends and 
remained so until his death. He took up the carpenter's trade and carried on his farm also He was very 
industrious and ingenious. He joined the Confederate army Sept. 1862 in Co. G., 8th NC Regt. under 
Capt. E. C. YELLOWLEY and made one of the very best solders, remaining in the war until it ended 
He was taken prisoner at Cole Harbor June 2nd, 1864, and remained in prison until Feb. 1865. 

Some time after the close of the war he put up a work shop at Rochdale and did much repair work 
and was the coffin builder of the community. The writer was often called on to help make coffins He ' 
has with my help made many on Sundays. He was so good and kind that he would often let the work 
go without the cash and in many cases, yes, very many, he failed to get his pay. So he gave away consid- 
erable of his labor. 3 

Mr. WILLOUGHBY was married in 1867 to Miss Caroline F. COBB, daughter of the late J. C. 
COBB, and had five children born unto him, four of whom are now living J H and B P 
WILLOUGHBY, Mrs. C. D. SMITH and Mrs. C. L. TYSON. His first wife died in June 1879, and he 
remained a widower for a year or two, and finding that it was not good to be alone he married Miss 
Christiana CRAWFORD in 1881 and had three other children born unto him, two of whom are now 
living, R. E. WILLOUGHBY and Mrs. C. E. MCLAWHORN. 

Mr. Willoughby was a very good and kind neighbor and one of the best citizens. He was a hard 
worker, and worked as long as he was able and then he stayed around the house and did many little 
jobs that some of the hands would had to have done. He was one of five of we old soldiers that lived on 
the same road and the two farthest apart not more than one and a half miles They were E S PARKER 
B. F. CRAWFORD, Joab TYSON, R. A. WILLOUGHBY and T. E. LITTLE. Mr. WILLOUGHBY like the ' 
writer, never failed to attend the old soldiers' reunion as long as he was able to be present. 

When Mr. WILLOUGHBLY was taken sick his friends, who were very many, paid all the attention 
to him that friends could, and there was nothing left undone. 

He lay speechless for about a week from the time he was first taken on the 16th of February 1910 
and passed quietly away February 26th, at the age of 75 years and ten days. 

I have written the above sketch very briefly and have left out much that might have been said, but 
decided to let this suffice. — Thos. E. LITTLE. 



MRS. J. T. SMITH DEAD.

On Friday, March 25th, at her home in Middlesex, N.C, the spirit of Mrs Emily SMITH the 
beloved wife fo Mr. J. T. SMITH, took its flight to the eternal world. Mrs. SMITH was sick one week with 



PCGQ, Aug. 1995 14 



that fatal disease, pneumonia. Her remains were brought to Ayden and laid to rest in the town cemetery 
on Saturday, March 26th. 

Mrs. SMITH leaves two sons and three daughters: J. T. SMITH, Jr., of Ayden, Mr. J. C SMITH of 
Robersonville, Mrs. W. T. MASON, of Stokes, Mrs. W. O. BILBRO, of Middlesex, and Miss Delia SMITH 
of Middlesex. Deceased was a daughter of John TYSON of Pitt county, and leaves fours brothers and one 
sister. Mrs. SMITH was a noble consecrated woman, was a member of the Primitive Baptist church at 
Great Swamp many years previous to her death, and died in the full triumphs of a living faith. As 
neighbor, wife, mother and sister her life was a model one. Her life was one of devotion and her chief 
joy consisted in making others happy May the good Lord in his abundant mercy comfort the bereft 
husband and children. — Ayden Baptist.

MR. ALFRED JAMES DEAD. 
(Daily Reflector; June 15, 1908) 

Mr. Alfred JAMES, one of the county's oldest citizens, died Thursday, June 11, at his home in 
Carolina township. In January he had a severe case of pneumonia, and had been confined to his bed 
ever since. Sometimes he could sit up for an hour but was never able to walk any more. He bore his 
suffering with all patience, at first he was very anxious to get well and hoped to be able to walk by his 
84th birthday, March 12th, but toward the last he was willing to die and said he was going to rest. We 
feel sure that he has gone there, still it was hard for the family to give him up. 

He was a good neighbor, always doing something for his community never had a dispute or lawsuit 
with anybody. Was a true Christian, having belonged to the Primitive Baptist church at Flat Swamp for 
29 years, and no man could be truer to his church. 

He had been twice married, his last wife having preceded him into eternity by five years. One of his 
sons with his family has lived with him since her death. He was a native of Pitt county and served in 
the 17th N.C. regiment as a Confederate soldier, fighting in the battle of Seven Pines and with LEE in 
the battle of the Wilderness. 

Eight children, fifty-six grand children, and thirty-five great-grand children, besides a host of 
friends, are left to mourn their loss, but their loss is his eternal gain. 

The funeral services were conducted by Elders ROBERSON and LAWRENCE and the body was laid 
to rest in the family burying ground. — M. 



MRS. M. A. HOYT 

(Eastern Reflector; Sept. 25, 1889) 

Mrs. M. A. HOYT, who was the oldest white person in Greenville, and whose death we announced 
two weeks ago, was born September 9th 1804, on the old SIMPSON plantation, six miles below town 
where her father, Mr. Joseph BRICKELL, then resided. Her death occurring on the 20th of September' 
1889, made her age 85 years and 1 day. When she was three years old, her parents moved to Greenville 



PCGQ, Aug. 1995 15 



and the remainder of her life was spent here. On the 17th of November, 1841, when little more than 21 
years of age, she was married to Mr. Gould HOYT, who was a native of New York, but had moved South 
and made Greenville his home. Mr. HOYT was one of the leading men here in his day, being for several 
years Clerk and Master in Equity of Pitt county. He also kept the hotel for a term of years and had the 
southern wing of the building added while in his hands. To this couple were born three children, all 
girls. One of them, the oldest, was married to Mr. William SHERROD, of Martin co., in 1842 in which 
county the remainder of her life was spent. The second daughter married Mr. A. W. MARSHAL, of 
Greenville. Later they moved to Georgia, then to Louisiana. After the death of her husband, Mrs. 
MARSHAL returned to Greenville and is now living here. The youngest daughter married Mr. J. J. 
DANCY in 1850 and that couple are still living in Greenville. Mrs. HOYT was left a widow in 1861, and 
the last years of her life were spent with her daughter, Mrs. DANCY. In 1841 she joined the M. E. 
Church, and many of our people know what a faithful member she was. Her remaining years were spent 
as a consistent Christian and she was devoted to her church. So long as health and strength permitted 
her seat in the church was never vacant when there was service. Some years ago when the congregation 
desired to build a new house of worship and at a location more convenient, Mrs. HOYT donated a part 
of her lot upon which to build it, but before the work commenced an opportunity was presented to 
secure a corner lot with parsonage attached, whereupon she permitted the lot donated by her to be sold 
and the proceeds applied to the purchase of the other site. While she was anxious to see a new church 
erected, we never will forget how much she loved that old building. When it was about to be torn down 
and removed this writer (who was christened by Mrs. HOYT) remembers to have published a poem 
concerning it, and was told by her that she preserved a copy and wept like a child every time she read 
the poem. The day following her death the remains of the excellent woman were carried to the old 
family burial ground near where she was born, and interred by the side of her husband. 



WILLIAM ROBERT HORNE 
Sketch of His Life by an Intimate Friend 
(Daily Reflector; Feb. 1, 1910) 

William Robert HORNE was born in 1857. He came of sturdy old English stock on his paternal 
side. His great grand father, Jacob HORNE, came from East Virginia and settled where the city of Rocky 
Mount now stands, where his grand father, Henry HORNE, was born in 1805. He moved to Pitt county 
in 1827 where he married Eliza BON [BOND]. From this union Josiah Robert HORNE was born. Robert 
HORNE married Martha JOYNER, mother of Amos JOYNER, and to them two children were born, 
William and Eliza. His father having died before he was 8 years old he was raised by his uncle, Franklin 
JOYNER. 

The writer had been closely associated with deceased all his life. He was my brother-in-law, cousin 
and my true friend. He was of that type of men known as country gentlemen, lived on his own soil, 
subsisting on the flesh of his own animals reared by him, and the fruits of his own field and garden. At 
his death he owned a large fertile farm, owned fine herds, had comfortable houses for his laborers and 
stables for his stock; plenty of turkeys and chickens and fruit for his family and all friends that came his 
way. 

William R. HORNE married Florence EDWARDS in June, 1887. No children were born to them. 
She was one of those true and good helpmates and was as devoted to him as any wife the writer has 
ever known, nursing and cheering him 'till the summons came. 

Bill HORNE, as he was familiarly known, was a lover of books and newspapers. He was the best 
posted country gentlemen to be found. His tact for reading with his wonderful memory and business 
judgment made his counsel sought after by the best men of his acquaintance. His good wife and aged 
mother, (the latter 76) two half sisters, Mrs. ASKEW and Mrs. POLLARD, of Farmville and a nephew, 
John TYSON, of Ensley, Ala., survive him. 

This good and worthy man had for some months been suffering with bladder trouble. The best 
physicians were called to his bedside but nothing could be done to save him. On the 23rd day of Jan. 
1910, his soul passed over the river to realms above, and on the 24th his ashes were laid to rest in the 
cemetery at Farmville. — G. T. TYSON.

MR. JESSE COX 
(Tarboro Southerner; Oct. 12, 1871)

to purchase some goods, and on his way home, when about four or five miles from town, his horse 
became frightened and ran off, upsetting his cart. There was a barrel of pork in the cart, which fell on 
Mr. COX'S head when the cart upset killing him almost instantly. Mr. COX is said to be a very worthy 
gentleman by those who knew him. He leaves a wife and several children.

CAUGHT A TURTLE 

(Eastern Reflector, May 2, 1899) 

Mr. J. F. JOYNER tells us that Uial Mrs. J. F. BRILEY, who lives in his neighborhood, went to the riv 
fishing on Friday, and caught a 24-pound turtle with a pole and lead line. She tied the turtle with a 
piece of grape vine and dragged it home. Mrs. BRILEY is the same woman who, just before she was 
grown, caught a deer in the field and killed .

MORE THAN A CENTENARIAN 

(Eastern Reflector, March 12, 1890) 

Mr. Blaney BAKER, the oldest man in Pitt county, died at his home five miles from Greenville 
on the 27th day of February. Mr. BAKER leaves a record behind him that is remarkable. That he was far 
over a hundred years old is undeniable, and in all his career he never had a professional visit from a 
physician nor did he ever take a dose of medicine from one. He was a man of good, moral habits, 
peaceable and quiet. He was a lifelong Democrat and voted for every Democratic candidate for Presi- 
dent from Jefferson down to Cleveland. As to his age two reports have come to us. One is from a man 
who has known Mr. BAKER for a number of years and says he claimed to have been born on the 2nd of 
March of the same year the Declaration of Independence was signed, 1776, which would have made 
him 114 years old lacking 3 days. This age is also accredited to him by some of the people of his neigh- 
borhood. But his Pastor, Rev. R. C. GLENN, (Mr. BAKER was a member of Tripp's Chapel Methodist 
Church and died in triumphant faith) tells us that Mr. BAKER told him frequently that his mother used 
to say he was born on the 2nd day of March of the year the Revolutionary War closed. This war closed 
in 1782 (though the records show the treaty not to have been signed until 1783) which would make his 
age lack 3 days of 108 years. Mr. GLENN asked him over about this on several occasions and found his 
mind to be very clear upon the subject, his answer everytime the same. So we can say with all safliy 
that he was at least 108 years old, while by many he is believed to have been 114. Mr. BAKER was a 
man of wonderful vigor. Up to five years ago he was able to perform his task with a grub hoe. To within 
a day or two of his death, his mind was clear and strong showing remarkable preservation for a man of 
his extreme age. 

DIED 

(King's Weekly, Oct 19, 1897, Friday) 

Cornelius KINSAULS, Greenville's oldest citizen, died at home here Monday morning. Old age was the 
primary cause of his death. No one spoke of him but as one the best citizens Greenville ever had. 
Everybody like him. He was buried Monday evening from the Methodist church, Rev. Mr. WATSON 
conducting the funeral. He leaves, but one relative, his son W. M. KINSAUL. 

His age is given as 81 years last February, but on his last birthday he told this writer that he was born in 
1817. Greenville was his birthplace and with the exception of a few years which he spent on his farm in 
the country he had lived here.

Pitt County Letters 



Two Frizzle family letters are contributed by Ann Dixon Vernelson. The first letter was written by 
William R. FRIZZLE to his sister, Sarah Ann FRIZZLE, who was attending Verina MOORE's Boarding 
and Day School for Young Ladies in New Bern, NC. The second letter was written to Sarah by her 
mother, Elizabeth (ROGERS) FRIZZLE, wife of Jonathan FRIZZLE. 

'3D 

Scuffleton llth of April 1849 



I write to you for the first time. Mother and family is well. Brother Jonathan and his family are well 
Jarusha and Zilpha ROUNTRE was up to Joseph MURPHEY on the 7th of April they were all wel Siser 
Apsley and family is wel. Charles ROGERS and family is wel. Brother Warren is gorn South he Started 
the last of March. I was at Greenville and saw that Negro hung on the 6th of April. I was in ten steps of 
him he never Spoke so that I could hear him he talk Some to the preacher and got down on his nees 
and the preacher praid for him and the preacher bid him farewel by shakeing hands with him then he 
walk up on the galos. I heard from sister Zilpha they was all wel. I wil send thoes things down which 
you spoke of by the first opitunity I expect to com down after I get my crops planted if they come 
water enough. Nothing more at present but that I am your affectionate Brother. 

William R. FRIZZLE 

_ „ , Pitt- Greene County [crossed out] April 28, 1849 

Dear Daughter, 

I recently received your communication and am sorry that an opportunity has not presented itself 
of my gratifying your request relative to the sending of your things to you; they are ready and will be 
transmitted the first opportunity. You will see some of your aquaintances from Green at the Convention 
and If not before I will try to send your things to you then. If you stand in need of anything and the 
circumstances are such that immediately require it, I want Miss Verina to procure it for you and she can 
be remunerated for the same. I would be very glad an opportunity would permit of my having the 
pleasure of seeing you and Frances but I do not anticipate anything of the kind for the distance is too 
far for me; and since you have left for the purpose of the improvement of your minds. I want you to 
disengage your minds an thoughts about home or things thereunto appertaining and prosecute with 
unabated diligence the object you had in view prior to your leaving. Knowing your studious habits I can 
take pleasure in advising and upon due reflection I have no doubt but what your views will coinside 
with mine for without application time may be wasted and money squandered. Literature not only 
elevates and expands the mind but makes it more scientific and leads to developements which the 
illiterate never can aspire to and is further a consolation under the most trying circumstances and is 
well calculated to eradicate and absolve the confused state the mind is often left in through ignorance. 
The aquisition of knowledge is one of the noblest and sublime undertakings and serves as a shi£d_ to 
virtue and a strong bulwark against the machinations of the seducer for its presense will dissipate his 
delusion. 

There has been no very strange or commerce occurrences since you left. There has been some few 
marriages, Calvin RUFF and Cornehous KINSALLS were married lately to a couple of Isaaih JOYNER's 
daughters. Jethrew MURPHREY married Miss MUSHGRAVE, I believe her name was Elizabeth —Nancy 
WARREN (Rich'd WARREN's wife) died the 21 inst and left a young child a son he wanted day of being 
a month old. So it is health and pleasure formed associations and matrimonial ties, yet the unwelcome 
messenger death disappoints and severs them. The health of the neighborhood so far as my knowledge 
extends is as good as usual. Absley P. ROUNTREE's Caleb SPIVEYs brother Jonathans and Charles 
ROGER'S family were enjoying as good health as usual when heard from last. — Jerusha sewed your 
flower seed and the cold weather destroyed them and said if you could get any in newbern time enough 



PCGQ, November 1995 7 



to sow send them up and she would try her luck again. You must give my respects to Miss Verina and in 
your next I want her to write to me how you are getting along with your studies. Warren has written 
since he left, he was in Montgomery, Ala, he was well at the time he wrote. There was a man killed in 
Pitt the lower close to Beaufort County line. I understand he has been committed to Beaufort Gaol I 
want you to direct your letters Scuffleton instead of Hookerton. 

My family are in tolerable good health at present and home [hope?] when this you receive you 
will be enjoying a reasonable portion of the same blessing. Jerusha and Frances send their love to vou 
both. 3 



Your affectionate mother, 
Rutha FRIZZLE 



NARROW ESCAPE. YOUNG LADY CAUGHT IN BUGGY WHEEL 

(Eastern Reflector, Sept. 12, 1899) 

Wednesday night there were services at Reedy Branch church, about six miles from town Several 
members of the family of Mr. J. W. SMITH, Superintendent of the County Home, were in attendance 
and returning home two of his daughters and a young man named Will SERMONS were riding to- 
gether. The mule they were driving run away and one wheel of the buggy run in a ditch One of the 
young ladies, Miss Nannie, was thrown out of the buggy and fell in the ditch. Her head caught between 
the spokes of the wheel, and when the mule pulled the wheel out of the ditch the young lady was 
pulled out by the neck. She was badly bruised and skinned by the accident, and it is almost miraculous 
that she escaped being killed. 



NARROW ESCAPE 

(Eastern Reflector, June 16, 1897) 



Mr. R. L. NICHOLS, of Beaver Dam township, tells us of a narrow escape his mother had a few days ago 
from serious if not fatal injury. Mrs. NICHOLS went to the well to draw a bucket of water. The bucket 
was fastened to an old fashioned sweep, and in lowering it the sweep broke, one end narrowly missing 
her head. Fortunately the falling sweep just grazed her left shoulder and arm and her injury was only 
slight. Had the sweep struck her on the head no doubt it would have killed her 



BITTEN BY A SPIDER 

(Eastern Reflector, May 20, 1896, Wed.) 

Wednesday afternoon Mr. Jesse TYSON, living about four miles from town, wanted to come to 
Greenville on business. He hitched up his horse to come and went in the house to put on his coat As 
he started out again he remarked to his wife that something had bit him on the shoulder. He started on 
to town without thinking anything serious of it, but after coming about two miles began to feel sick 
and noticed that he was turning blind and dizzy. By the time he reached town he was suffering in- 
tensely and drove at once to the office of Dr. Zeno BROWN. The latter was in the country but his father 
Dr. William BROWN, began treating Mr. TYSON until Dr. Zeno BROWN should return 
The doctor tells us that Mr. TYSON was in a right bad condition, but is now improving and he hopes 
soon will be all right again. His suffering threw him into convulsions for a while. It is supposed that the 
trouble was caused by the bite of a spider that had taken refuge in Mr. TYSON's coat while it was 
hanging up in his house. 



BADLY HURT 

(Eastern Reflector, May 20, 1896, Wed.) 

Monday afternoon a 10-year-old son of Mr. Marshal COX, of Chicod township, was driving a log cart 
In some way the windlass that held up the log became unfastened and the lever flew over and struck 
the boy on the back. The boy was badly hurt and narrowly escaped being instantly killed.

Comment by Douglas H. Willis: 

"As a descendant of James and Susannah Delamar Willis, through their sjm Sarah Gwaltney Willis, I was 
delighted to receive this family Bible Record from my distant cousin John Clark of New Bern NC. Mr 



PCGQ, November 1995 10 



(JAMES WILLIS BIBLE, con'd.) 

Clark is a descendant of Benjamin Gwaltney, brother of Sarah Gwaltney Willis. The Bible passing to the 
Mitchell family is explained by the fart that Mary (Polly) Willis, daughter of Joshua Willis married 
Joshua Mitchell. 

Since receiving this record I have done considerable research on the Delamar family I am convinced 
but lack conclusive proof, that Susannah Willis was the daughter of Francis Delamar Jr and his wife ' 
Susannha. Francis Jr made his will May 15 1739. He died in 1741 and his will mentions sons Francis 
and Thomas and later 'all my children.', indicating there were daughters. Francis Jr was the only son of 
Francis Sr and his first wife, Susannah Travis, widow of Daniel Travis. Francis Sr was a French Huguenot 
who came to the Panquotank area from France about 1686. Francis Sr died in 1713 during the Tuscarora 
Indian War, possibly a casualty of that war. He was one of the Justices of the Colonial Court." 

Comment by Charles B. Schweizer: 

"Mr Willis is deceased. I understand his family has the Bible in question. I am descended from Joel 
Willis Sr who is a proven Revolutionary War soldier. His father, James Willis, fought in the French and 
Indian War. ... I am also a descendant of Robert Worthington born 23 Feb 1801 in North Carolina who 
married Holland and whose first child was Susan Marie Worthington born ca 1822 in North Carolina

EIGHTIETH ANNIVERSARY 

(Eastern Reflector, April 5, 1907) 

Mr. Robert T. WILSON, one of Chicod's best citizens and a man highly esteemed, celebrated his eighti- 
eth birthday on Tuesday, at his home near Grimesland. He was born April 2nd, 1827, and is an active 
man for his years. Mr. and Mrs. W. H. RICKS (the latter his daughter) of Greenville; his son, Mr. J P. 
WILSON and wife, of Grimesland; Mr. and Mrs. F. J. BERRY and Mrs. O. B. CARMAULT, of Washing- 
ton, spent the anniversary with him. A sumptuous dinner was served, and no guest ate heartier or could 
tell a better joke than Mr. Wilson. 

MARRIED FIFTY-FIVE YEARS 

(King's Weekly, June 19, 1902) 

Mr. Moses TYSON and his wife, Mrs. Mary TYSON, who live about four miles from town on the plank 
road, have been married fifty-five years. Mr. TYSON is seventy-five years old and Mrs TYSON is about 
the same age. They have worked all their lives, being very industrious, and are in good comfortable 
circumstances. They work yet and Mr. TYSON is able to do farm work, which he does regularly. They 
raised a large family but only two of their children are living. There are many grandchildren. They are 
good citizens and highly respected. 

117 YEARS OLD 

(King's Weekly, Oct. 7, 1898) 

Fane TUCKER, a negro woman pauper, who lived at Mr. G. M. TUCKER's, died about two weeks ago, 
aged 117 years. There is no doubt about this. She was one year older than her Mistress, Mrs. Sara 
TUCKER, who died in 1873, aged ninety-one. This is well known in the TUCKER family. 
Again, Lem TEEL, Fane's brother who is in the poor house, is about 100 years old and he says his sister 
was grown the first he could remember of her.

Pitt County Family 

GWALTNEY FAMILY IN INDIANA 
By Charles B. Schweizer, 2 Lakewood Drive, Glen Carbon, IL 62034. 

"3D 

My son's wife remarked, "There are a lot of Gwaltneys in Surry County Virginia." She should 
know since she is a Virginian. I am a descendant of Joel WILLIS, Sr., who married Sarah GWALTNEY 
which is the reason for my interest in the Gwaltney family. 

Two principal references to the Gwaltney family are "Gwaltney of Surry and Isle of Wight" by 
Boddie, published in Vol. II of Historical Southern Families in 1970, and #218 "Thomas Gwaltney and 
Descendants" published in Vol. I, 1984, of the Heritage of Craven County North Carolina. This article 
concerns John GWALTNEY whose family emigrated from North Carolina to Kentucky and then to 
Indiana in 1818. 

A bit of background: I am a member of the Sons of the American Revolution and as such help 
many prospective applicants prepare their SAR membership applications. Not too long ago a man in 
Madison County, IL, called me, and in discussing his ancestors mentioned a Gwaltney. I never expected 
to hear of a Gwaltney descendant in Illinois because most North Carolinians had gone south to Georgia 
and beyond. It turned out a Gwaltney had moved to Indiana. Here is the story. 

Thomas GWALTNEY, Jr., son of Thomas GWALTNEY, Sr., was born in Surry County, Virginia and 
moved to present day Pitt County, North Carolina about 1737 where he died in June 1783 He married 
twice; his first wife was Mary GOODMAN by whom he had Thomas Gwaltney, III, and William 
Gwaltney (the elder) who married Lydia RIVES. Not much is known about Thomas III William (the 
elder) and Lydia had William Gwaltney (the younger). Mary Goodman Gwaltney died and Thomas, Jr., 
married second Hannah, whose maiden name is unknown. Thomas Gwaltney, Jr., served on the Com-' 
mittee of Safety of Pitt County during the American Revolution and signed the Pitt County Resolves As 
such, he qualifies as a Revolutionary War Patriot. 

Thomas and Hannah GWALTNEY had four children: Sarah, who married Joel WILLIS, Sr., and is 
the writer's 5th great-grandmother; Rhoda, who married Jacob HICKMAN; John, who married Ann 
MURPHY; and Benjamin, who married Rachael GARRELL. This article concerns John and Anne 
(Murphy) Gwaltney. 

John was born 25 Nov. 1765 in present day Pitt County and died in Posey County, Indiana 8 Oct 
1818. He married Anne MURPHY 12 Aug. 1789 in Pitt County. Anne was born 21 Feb 1771 or 1772 in 
Craven Co., NC, and died in Dec. 1827 in Posey County. In addition to acquiring much land in Indi- 
ana, John and Anne had nine children. These children were (1) Thomas, born 13 Dec. 1796 and died 7 
Jul. 1873, who married Nancy REEDER 13 Nov. 1818 in Posey Co. She was born 13 Nov. 1818* in 
Kentucky. (2) John, born 15 Oct. 1798 and died 9 Nov. 1870, who married Mary "Polly" WILLIS 19 
April 1827. (3) Benjamin, born 29 Oct. 1800 and died 30 Mar. 1886, who married Sarah MURPHY 13 
Sep. 1821. (4) Harris, born 28 March 1802 and married Anna MURPHY 16 Jan. 1823. (5) Amariah, born 
9 Feb. 1804 and died 7 Jul. 1848, who married Sarah REEDER 24 July 1828. (6) Elizabeth "Betsy," born 
29 Jul. 1806 in Kentucky and died 8 Sep. 1825, who married Joseph CAMPBELL 8 Sep. 1825. (7) Frances 
"Fannie," born 24 Sep. 1809 in Muhlenburg Co., Kentucky, and died 3 Mar. 1894, who married James 
COX 9 Aug. 1832. (8) Adah, born 18Jan. 1812; and (9) Cynthia, born 3 Dec. 1816, and married Thomas 
J. MITCHALL 31 Jan. 1833. Their descendants have populated southwestern Indiana and southeastern 
Illinois. 

Mr. Henry R. GWALTNEY of Washington, Indiana, employed a professional genealogist in En- 
gland to research the Gwaltney family in Europe. He determined the family could be traced back to 
Edward GWALCHMAI in 1681 in Wales. The earliest records of the family are believed to be in the 
township of Kevenkleisiog in Llanfihangel-yn-Ngwynfa in 1626 in Wales. Proof that John GWALTNEY 
moved to Posey Co., Indiana, is an indenture in Pitt Co., NC, Book CC, page 6, where Anne Gwaltnev 
sold land to Amos EVANS. 



*Nancy Reeder's birth date is in error; she was married on that date.
